It will be great if your dog is groomed a couple of weeks prior to the session or at whatever point you think he/she looks best!
Yes, I have volunteered with Boston Terrier Rescue Canada and photographed hundreds of animals at Georgian Triangle Humane Society, which helped them find their forever homes!
Absolutely. Pet photography is all great lighting and connecting with your pet to get the best shots.
Although it’s great if your dog knows some basic commands, the important thing is to capture his/her personality. The best approach is for you to relax!! I have the experience and expertise to connect with your dog upon meeting him/her, which enables me to capture the images that show his/her true personality.
Joy Sessions are for the saddest time we share with our dogs, when we are faced with the heartbreaking realization that they are slipping away from us. My sessions are called Love You Forever Sessions, and I will make every effort to accommodate these sessions to ensure that you have lasting memories of the dog you love. Losing my own goldendoodle, Elijah to cancer made me realize just how meaningful these sessions are. I will always treasure the images I captured of Elijah at the home I carried him to as a playful puppy, on the day before he passed away peacefully in my arms. Love You Forever Sessions are 299.
Yes, you will receive digital web files of all products you order. High resolution files are also available for purchase, though I recommend high quality printed products for their enhanced impact and longevity compared to digital files. The high resolution files are included with the purchase of all wall portraits.
Session fees (see Sessions) include the pre-session consultation, my creative talent, capturing the images, professional post processing and the post-session viewing.
I shoot on location, including parkland and homes in Toronto, Collingwood and in-between, and in my studio that is designed for pets, with flooring used in doggy daycares and a comfortable sitting area for you and your pet to enjoy treats and refreshments.
Yes, I love capturing the special bond you share; these are the images you will cherish forever! We will discuss any special pet photography images you are envisioning, as well as clothing choices during the complimentary pre-shoot consultation.
